Money is not as important in life as your health. Yes you cannot live without it but without your health you have no life at all.
I think that as long as you have enough to pay the bills and live reasonably comfortable in a small house and are happy then your life is rich.
Big houses and expensive jewelry will not make you any happier they are just material things. Lets face it at the moment people are losing their homes to fire disasters and many other things and they do not distinguish from the wealthy to the poor.
So which is more important. I think health is the most important not money.
